Opus Recruitment Solutions set to smash record turnover after strong 6 months
This is the fifth consecutive year that the Bristol and London-based Company has recorded growth in turnover and profits. Between 2011 and 2013 alone, turnover increased by 133% from £5.9m to £13.75m, making Opus Recruitment Solutions one of the fastest growing recruitment companies in the UK.
Opus' rising revenues over the last six months have been boosted by an increase in both temporary recruitment and permanent recruitment activity.
In IT, there has been an upswing in investment across the sector and a loosening of the purse strings which is fuelling demand for more staff. Indeed, the company estimates that as many as 4 in 10 tech employers plan to increase their hiring activity in Q3 and Q4.
In the Oil & Gas sector, despite a declining investment in exploration in ageing North Sea fields, confidence among oil and gas employers over the next two years remains high. This, according to Opus Recruitment Solutions, has seen continued demand for new employees not just for assignments in the UK but also in a number of international locations too, as many companies are now planning further growth in key overseas, notably Africa and the Middle East.
Darren Ryemill, CEO, Opus Recruitment Solutions, said: “There has been a significant growth in demand in the sectors in which we operate over the last few years, but none more so than since the start of this year. The team has responded magnificently to this by ensuring that we continue to match candidates to the right roles whilst ensuring that our clients have access to the right talent at the right time.
“Our performance as a business this year to date demonstrates that Opus Recruitment Solutions is increasingly becoming the agency of choice for both UK and international job seekers and employers alike. This is further evidenced by the fact that Opus Recruitment Solutions has remained an almost permanent fixture in the Virgin Fast Track100 list each year since 2011. The recent opening of a new central London office to complement our head office in Bristol, as well as our exciting new location in sunny Sydney, Australia!
“As we move towards the latter half of 2014, we shall be continuing in the same vein – we are currently in the process of increasing our headcount to 90 having recently taken on 9 new starters in August alone.
“The growth of Opus Recruitment Solutions is indicative of the renewed confidence of the economy and it is our intention to continue investing in our business and our people to ensure that we continue to move forward in what is an exciting time for the company.”
